9/25/20 -Do You Know All The Different Factors That Affect Your Social Security Benefits?


Most people pay a lot of money into the Social Security system during their working years.  But do you know how much you will get out of the system?  A recent survey says that most people do not know exactly what affects their Social Security Benefits?



9/19/20 - Question of the Month - September

“Hello, Brian.  My wife and I are 65 years old and still working.  We plan to retire in a few years.  Until then, we are saving money for retirement.  One way we save is by contributing to our Roth IRAs each year, maximizing them out at $7,000 apiece.  We are also trying to become more tax efficient because we believe tax rates will be much higher in the future.

It is August, and that means it is back-to-school time.  But back-to-school time is not just for kids in school anymore. With so many changes in the financial and economic arena each and every year, in order to keep your retirement plan updated and accurate at all times, you simply have to make sure you go ‘back to school’ to stay educated and informed.  So it is back-to-school time for your retirement plan.
